Viewers will see about 60 works by 20 artists who, from the 1990s to the present, have made the country’s complex socio-political climate their work. Pieces explore issues regarding borders, violence, corruption, economic and civic institutions, and revolution.

A variety of media is featured including sculpture, video, photography, collage, and drawings. Generous support for the exhibition is from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Through Jan. 5 Amon Carter Museum of American Art presents “Color! American Photography Transformed,” an exhibition that follows the development of photography from Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre’s black and white daguerreotype to a facsimile of a color photograph made in 1851 by Levi L. Hill (1816-1865) who was never able to duplicate that feat, to glass plate Autochrome which leading artist-photographers such as Alfred Stieglitz were happy to see. Yet even by the 1960s color photographs still had not reached the artistic standing as that of black and white. In 1976 that changed when an exhibition curated by John Szarkowski of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, sponsored a show of the Memphis photographer William Eggleston’s work that focused on the world in color rather than the colors of the world.
